One-Off Morgan Super 3 Gets Custom Cloth Canopy And Luggage Rack

In February, Morgan unveiled its new Super 3 three-wheeler, revealing its most customizable model yet. Morgan is now highlighting the personalization capabilities of Super 3 ahead of the holiday season with a new collaboration. Morgan has partnered with swimwear brand Orlebar Brown to design a one-off Super 3 with unique interior and exterior touches.

This collaboration resulted in a bespoke Super 3 in Pastel Beige paint. The car features subtle Orlebar Brown branding on the outside, with a special geometric laser-cut luggage rack with red bungee cords on the side slats that are the most eye-catching.

Inside, Morgan and OB finished the cabin in a matching Khaki Sand technical fabric, with red accents used throughout, the brand color Orlebar Brown. The company also uses the material for its removable canopy. Morgan’s special projects team adapted the Super 3 to accommodate the sunshade, which fits over the roll hoop and fly screen with specially adapted mounts. This gives passengers a reprieve from the sun in the open cockpit.

A red bungee cord is also on board, while the instrument cluster features Pastel Beige gauges. The final piece of branding is the OB-livery, body-color gear shift surround.

Morgan designed the new Super 3 from the ground up, with a bonded aluminum monocoque platform as its base. Power comes from a Ford-sourced naturally aspirated three-cylinder engine paired to a five-speed gearbox from the Mazda MX-5. However, Morgan modified the transmission to suit his needs.

The engine produces 118 horsepower (87 kilowatts) and 110 pound-feet (150 Newton-meters) of torque. It can reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in a claimed 7.0 seconds on the way to a 130-mph (209-kph) top speed. The engine start-stop button is one of the few components brought over to the new Super 3.

The one-off Super 3 will appear over the next 12 months in some of Europe’s most exotic locations. The Super 3 you can buy now are in showrooms around the world. This car is available in the UK, Europe and the US.
